Employer Support

Nazarbayev University’s Graduate School of Business requires securing support from your employer for the EMBA Program. Your employer’s letter of support should be included with your application and written on your company’s letterhead.
The types of support which sponsoring companies give can range from a full financial scholarship, to a partial company sponsorship, to absentee support. A full financial scholarship often requires the employee to agree to a defined work commitment upon completion of the program. A partial company scholarship pays part of the tuition and/or travel expenses.
Absentee support allows the employee to have paid time off for time away from the office, but employee bears the cost of tuition and travel.
